Peregrine’s Chinese Immersion Preschool will provide a play-based, developmentally appropriate, and Reggio-inspired preschool experience for all students. Chinese will be embedded in art, science, games, songs, fantasy play, and other child-centered activities.  Children will be given opportunities to express themselves in a language that is familiar, while also being exposed to a new language.

Program staff will begin by using Chinese as the instructional language less than 50% of the time, and will gradually increase the percentage of Chinese instruction to 80% of the time by the end of the school year. As is usual at Peregrine, teachers will speak to students in their first language for emotional/disciplinary situations and when teaching a new idea, such as a science concept.  There will be some code switching at the beginning of the year, with less as the year progresses.
